Georgetown / McDonough MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus

Round 2 Interview in Mid-February

Off-campus in a Chicago hotel

AdCom blind interview

Received standard interview questions:

  • Why MBA? I talked about my career path and my LT/ST goals.
  • Why Georgetown? I referenced a McDonough friend, campus visit, its holistic education, global brand, Global Residency, and career placements.
  • What’s your leadership style? I defined my style and talked about a work project.
  • What do you do outside of work? I talked about my extracurriculars.
  • Tell me about a failure. I talked about tough project where I stumbled.
  • How would you market yourself for your desired internship? I talked about my strengths.
  • Do you have any questions for me? (What do you like the most about Georgetown? How do classmates interact with each other if they have only one semester of core courses and 3 semesters of electives? What initiatives are available to help students in the recruiting season?)

My interview was supposed to be 30 minutes, but was 45 minutes. The conversation was fairly one-sided until the Q&A session, but I got a good vibe from my interviewer, especially after I told her that I participated in the Georgetown Experience campus visit program.
